Hi! Welcome to our SPED page here at Fannin Elementary!
Who we are!
I am Susie Ramirez, the Resource teacher and Mr. Robert Gable is the para-professional; together we work tirelessly to help all our students succeed, whether it be in Inclusion or Pull-out. We service students from 1st grade through 5th grade. We recently took a lesson on the life cycle of plants to the next level and decided to start our very own classroom garden outside of our portable. So far we are growing tomatoes, marigolds, sunflowers, pumpkins, watermelons and cucumbers. We are hoping to expand on this project and dedicate a bigger space that will hold a variety of plants, vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Pictures of our garden can be found in the Garden 2015 gallery!
I graduated UTEP in May of 2013 with a degree in Special Education. I pursued a career in education, and specifically special education, because my son is a child with special needs. I understand students with disabilities both from an educator's standpoint and a parent's standpoint. I am certified to teach Special Education from Early Childhood through 12th grade and also General Education from Early Childhood through 6th grade. This is my second year here at Fannin. I love all the students, faculty and staff here and plan to make this my forever home!
Help at Home!
Our students use many interactive sites to increase their reading and math skills. You will find links to Lexia and Sheppard Software. We encourage your child to log on and take the fun of the classroom to their home.
I am available for conferences Monday-Friday from 2:30-3:15.
